  • Throughout this four-week class, learners will learn about how music impacts our emotions, share with the class their favorite songs, create multiple music playlists, and much more! Learners will also gain a further appreciation of music.
As the teacher for this class, I bring a unique blend of expertise to our class discussions. With a bachelor's and master's degree in Psychology, along with a doctorate in Education, I offer a deep understanding of the psychological and educational aspects of our topics. Additionally, my advanced professional undergraduate certificate in Music, coupled with 19 years of musical experience, including being a nationally competitive classical pianist for over a decade, equips me with a comprehensive understanding of the power of music. This diverse background allows me to guide you through our exploration of music's influence on our emotions, creativity, and well-being.
